Off The Beaten Path
While traveling in DC earlier this week, I decided to do something out of the ordinary (for myself at least).
Arriving late on a Sunday night, I took a restaurant recommendation from a friend and ventured out to a Belgium gastropub. She warned me that it was “off the beaten path”, so I suppose I should have been prepared…
I’m not adverse to eating by myself, and in fact, traveling cross-town in search of a perfect bison burger and twice-fried frites was something I was a excited about.
There were countless reason to not go: it was late, I was in a new city, I was by myself, it was 20 minute walk through a sketchy part of town, they stopped serving food in 30 minutes, etc, etc, etc.
When it was all said and done, the evening was fantastic.
I enjoyed a great, low-key meal and enjoyed the quiet nightly stroll through some pretty cool parts of DC.
All because I took that first step.
